Equality before the law

So, if you are a Muslim, and you are also paranoid about a hypothetical anti-Muslim sentiment having been stirred up by previous Islamic violence, then you can get away with a whole lot these days:

A MUSLIM terror suspect who wounded a policeman in a gunfight escaped conviction on serious shooting charges after a judge found "anti-Muslim sentiment" made him fear for his safety

“I am not satisfied that he put the Browning in his pants because he was planning to shoot his arresting officers, rather he did so because he was concerned for his safety, and the state he was in brought about his illness, his concern that he was going to be arrested, and the climate of anti-Muslim feeling in the community at the time, he believed that he might be harmed by the police."

There you have it; in Oz it is legal for a Muslim to shoot policemen. That make you feel all sort of warm and fuzzy and multicultural?

    “It is understood the officers involved in the arrest of the man in November 2005 left the force as a result of the incident.”

    Yup, I’d find alternative employment too, if I were them. Something a lot more sensible.

    Amazing it wasn’t more? Yes. Yes, it was…

    I hope Israel goes spastic and drops the fucking hammer. We’ve never had a thermonuke deployed in anger. Odds-on the first time we do it will boil a million of these chauvinistic cunts. That will really set the cat among the pigeons.
